We were looking forward to our stay here having read the review in our guide book, but first impressions were disappointing. It is in the harbour area, but the location is not as picturesque as we had expected. It has no direct outlook over the water, being enclosed at two sides and overlooking industrial units and a car park on the other two sides. The part of the harbour that it is closest to is also not the most attractive, having a manufacturing warehouse style construction dominating the view. The outside of the hotel is also a bit uninspiring, but once inside that soon changes. The decor is very tasteful and the place has a modern, light and stylish feel. The decor makes a pleasant change from the standard chain hotels, though the bathrooms were rather basic (but clean).
We also had some problems with our advanced booking which didn't help in terms of first impresssions, but to be fair they sorted this for us and gave us one of our rooms free on the first night as compensation so we ended up happy on that front..
Breakfast is best described as basic but reasonable quality - limited cereals bread and fruit with a few slices of cold meats and cheeeses and no hot options. The dining area is very pleasant, however, as is their outdoor courtyard.More
